Is your school connected with any particular philosophy or group?
How does that ‘inspiration’ manifest itself in the school? Does it impact the school curriculum or the day to day running of the school?
Hizmet’s teachings and emphasis on education influenced the founders of the school and by extension the nature and character of the school in the following ways:
- Establishing a non-profit school.
- Establishing a school that is nondenominational and inclusive in terms of student background, ethnicity and religion.
- Ensuring that the school provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere for the students, parents, and staff.
- Offering an educational ethos that emphasizes academic excellence on the one hand and universal values such as social responsibility, empathy, engagement, compassion, and care on the other.
Other than the above, Hizmet’s inspiration has no other impact on the school. The school board of governors and the school management team runs NLGS which is an independent school. NLGS follows the national curriculum, does not promote or teach a particular religion or philosophy including that of Hizmet. Ofsted inspects NLGS and all other relevant stakeholder bodies.
